No lock can hold her. She can open any lock as if it was not there. Uttering that single fact marked the end of life as she knew it. Months after Pia broke up with him, Keith reappears and blackmails her into stealing an object, any object, from Dragos's secret horde. Pia takes a secret pleasure in retrieving a simple copper penny for Keith instead of anything valuable. Her conscience has her leaving another penny in its place, along with a short note of apology. Before handing the coin over to Keith, she returns the favor of blackmail.
To get what Pia stole, Keith has to read a binding spell. Never again would Keith be able to use her or tell any of her secrets. She must leave everything and everyone she cares for behind. There is no doubt that the massive dragon would find her. Dragos has never shown mercy. Her circumstances would not matter. He would find her. He would rend her to pieces. Pia can only run to dely the inevitable.
Pia makes it to Charleston, South Carolina. It is the seat of the Elven Court and the Wyr, especially their leader Dragos, cannot trespass without breaking all sorts of treaties. So Pia is standing on the beach, feeling safe and secure, at least for the moment, when a humongous dragon dives from the sky, morphing into the form of Dragos, as he pounces upon his prey - her. Stalling, Pia starts answering all of Dragos's questions while wondering when he would begin dishing out justice for her crime against him.
Once she finishes explaining how and why she committed the theft, Pia is shocked to hear that Dragos is sparing her life. Of course, she will have to make recompense by serving him at Cuelebre Enterprise until he deems the debt is paid. Upon catching his little thief, Dragos realizes that, for the first time in centuries, he is not bored.
Pia constantly surprises him and he is eager for her to remain close. Until Dragos releases Pia, she is his! But getting her safely back to Cuelebre Tower in New York turns out to be a challenge. This is the first title of the Elder Races Series. My synopsis explains the main characters, what first brings them together, and some challenges they must overcome; however, it does not really do the story justice. All the obstacles I mention do not even cover the first half of this book. The second half is in New York, where the pair will face much more danger. Secondary characters who play vital roles and who may have their own story in the future have their backgrounds developed.
I refuse to write spoilers! The author has basically kept the world as we know it today. Since it is familiar to me, I feel a connection with the story. It is believable to me. Other authors have done this. The "Sookie Stackhouse Series" is a good example and I feel that Harrison's world and characters are just as well done. Readers will find themselves hooked immediately and dread having to put the book down for even a brief time. I warn you not to being reading this story until you are sure that you have plenty of alone time.
With this one story, the author has made a fan of me. Thea Harrison's writing is exceptional in every way. Urien's segregationist rule had isolated the Dark Fae society from the rest of the world. Unlike their kin, called the Light Fae, the Dark Fae was known for subterfuge and silent political allegiances.
Long ago Urien had taken the Dark Fae throne in a bloody coup. He had slaughtered his brother, King Rhian, and the entire royal family to get it - or so he thought. There had been one body unaccounted for. Niniane Lorelle had been seventeen-years-old when her uncle had butchered her family. She had run straight to Dragos, Lord of the Wyr, for sanctuary and had been part of the Wyrkind inner circle for almost two hundred years. But with the death of King Urien, it was time for Tricks to reveal herself as Niniane, rightful heir to the throne.
Niniane met with a small delegation for only a short time, one of whom was her cousin, before she was stabbed. For the second time in her life, Niniane had been betrayed by her own blood kin. Someone caught the assassination attempt on video and uploaded it to the web. This was how Dragos found out about the attack. Tricks was in hiding, if not dead somewhere. Dragos sent his best man to locate Tricks and to keep her alive until after her coronation. Tiago Black Eagle is one of only three known thunderbirds in existence.
When not in his human form, Tiago is a gigantic bird of prey with a thirty-foot wingspan. He has been the head of Dragos's private army for several hundred years now. The other Wyr sentinels call him "Dr. Death" behind his back for good reason. He is a killing machine quick to anger and fueled by immense Power.
He has an intimate understanding of vengeance, hunting, and killing. When he loses his temper, thunder rolls and lightning strikes. For Tiago, tracking Tricks is easy. Tending her wounds and keeping the spitfire alive is not. She is a fragile faery yet, unlike any other sane creature in the world, she did not hesitate to needle a pissed-off thunderbird. She may not be a warrior, but she is nicknamed "Tricks" for a reason. Dragos's sentinels, who are mostly gryphons, had taught her to fight dirty, and the little faery has managed to get under his skin somehow.
When a second assassination attempt occurs, Tiago is prepared to shoot and ask question later. Niniane refuses to return to New York and Tiago refuses to leave her side. Niniane is in pain, has no idea of whom she can trust, and the warlord sentinel is tap dancing on her last nerve. The man is always angry, irritable, rude, protective and sarcastic, comforting in danger and calm under fire and unrepentantly, aggressively antisocial.
His is an unconquerable spirit and his bedside manner is sociopathic. But he is also the only one she can totally trust to guard her back. With Urien dead, Niniane can finally help her people return to a better way of life. She would be firm but fair, as her father had been. During this time of transition, Niniane needs all the help she can get; however, she cannot ask for too much more from the Wyrkind.
Niniane must be careful not to alienate any powerful government officials and much-needed Dark Fae allies. No other Elder demesne will tolerate it should they believe the Wyr to be getting too much favoritism. Power among the United States Elder Races is carefully balanced and needs to remain so for the sake of peace. Taking her broken heart with him. Though this is a stand-alone story, I strongly urge you to read the first title of this series Dragon Bound before beginning this one.
In the first story, readers not only get to enjoy watching Tricks and Tiago clash, but they also get some foreshadowing for this current story. It will help you understand Tricks and Tiago just a bit better. However, you do not HAVE to. The author has done a terrific job of introducing the pair. In this story, the backgrounds of Tricks and Tiago become fully developed. They are opposites. Yin and yang. In short, exactly what each needs to make them whole. Thea Harrison keeps events moving alone at a good pace.
Danger, suspense, and political intrigue are everywhere. But best of all are the clashes between the hero and the heroine, both in and out of the bedroom. Now the time has come for this First Sentinel to fulfill his obligation. Of course, Dragos, Lord of the Wyr, is not happy, but a magical debt is legally binding.
With luck, the former Vampyre Queen would not demand anything from Rune that would take the massive gryphon decades, if not centuries, to accomplish. Yet when Rune appears before Carling, he finds an ailing woman on the edge. Carling is dying. There comes a time in all vampyres' lives if something does not kills them first when they begin to suffer from periodic episodes and their minds drift off.
Carling has spent over two hundred years studying the phenomenon, researching for its cause and a possible cure. All in vain. Carling's Power has become erratic and her episodes are increasing in severity and frequency. Most of her followers have fled in fear. Other than a dog and one of her youngest progenies, Carling is alone on her island.
Though Carling tosses away the debt Runes owes and releases him from their bargain, Rune simply cannot bring himself to leave. Regardless of the risk, Rune decides to help Carling find a cure for whatever the disease is that is killing her. Rune is very attracted to the dangerous vampyre. To be honest, Rune likes her penchant for violence. He finds is exciting.
And even a handsome, immortal shifter can never be conceited while Carling is around. Rune brings the talented pathologist, Dr. Seremela Telemar, in for a private consultation. Seremela is of the Medusa race and often has a unique perspective on her cases. Rune is not the only one pulling strings. The Djinn, Khalil, still owes Carling two more favors. With the very real possibility of her death in the near future, Carling has no need to horde them. Might as well use them while she can. If all of this is not enough, something odd and dangerous is happening every time Carling has an "episode".
Ahem, I mean whenever she wanders off to feed the bats in her belfry. Then there is Julian Regillus, King of the Nightkind, who may be willing to risk a war in order to either control Carling or hasten her to her doom. With the entire situation quickly escalating, the sentinel and the former Queen will have to rely on each other is they have any hope of surviving. Thea Harrison has created a magnificent world where the night overflows with malevolent intents, yet rare romances can still be found to last for eternity.
Both main characters are more dangerous than most in the Elder Races. In fact, Carling seems to ooze danger from her pores and Rune seems to radiate hostility from his aura. Still, the author manages to show a lighter, more flirting and humorous, side to the pair. The Djinn, Khalil, will be getting his story told next in the book titled, Oracle's Moon. I am hoping that Dr. Seremela Telemar will have a story sometime in the future.
A character that is a combination of a Pathologist and a Medusa is just too juicy to create and NOT dedicate a full length novel for. I found the author's unique take on the snakes, each with individual minds, to be utterly brilliant! No one writes incorrigible characters like Thea Harrison.
But earlier this year, Petra and her husband had been killed in a car accident. When Petra died, the Power moved to the second daughter, Grace. As the new Oracle of Louisville, Grace has the unwanted Power of prophecy. When Grace was in the hospital recovering from the wreck, she had promised herself she would not make any long-term decisions or commitments to anything or anyone other than Chloe and Max.
Now that Grace is the guardian of her four-year-old niece and nine-month-old nephew, their well being would always come first. With them is an ancient Djinn, Khalil. Grace is relieved when the sentinel and vampyre finally leave. Her big problem since those events of only this morning is the fact that the Djinn did not leave with them. Grace has monstrous medical bills and no health insurance coverage. She has received nothing from the dead trucker who had let his insurance coverage lapse. Her new responsibilities has brought her schooling to an abrupt halt, leaving her with a large amount of student debt.
Grace is now on food stamps and is seriously considering filing for bankruptcy. Needless-to-say, Grace has enough to worry about without adding a Djinn to the list. And no matter how much Chloe and Max seem to like Khalil, Grace wants no part of his attention. When her life is endangered, Grace realizes how much protection a Djinn can offer. The Djinn do not use money. They traded in favors. A bargain is a sacred thing. So when Grace makes a deal with Khalil, she understands that her life has taken a dangerous turn. This is the fourth book in the Elder Races series. As the reader, my biggest concern was how an immortal Djinn and a mortal Oracle could possibly have a lasting relationship.
Not only are they different species, but mortals grow old and die. I have never read a story with a Djinn being a main character. Grace is a strong character and a wonderful role model for little Chloe and Max, who are absolutely charming. Chloe managed to steal the spotlight once or twice. Very intriguing character there with lots of future potential. Because Grace is human and under the normal stress of being a single parent, I could easily relate to her. Yet those same traits kept her from being MORE in my eyes. The previous titles had larger-than-life characters.
Grace is just human. Yes, a human with a special gift, yet still a mere human; therefore, my interest in her character did not begin to grow until late in the story. This is a very well written tale with cameos from previous main characters of earlier titles in the series. It is not as fast paced as the earlier stories, but it is definitely worth your time to read and enjoy.
Those vivid warnings turn out to be correct and Bronse knows he must not be separated from his team. Later, Bronse ends up rescuing the woman from his dreams, Ravenna. She is the leader of a group of young people with special gifts. This story took me awhile to really sink into. But once I finally got everyone straight, the story become enthralling.
The plot sits on a strong foundation, upon which more stories may be built. Several other characters, especially Lasher, grabbed my attention. By the ending, I was ready for more. Most of the world follows the old Laws of the Blood, but in Chicago it is different. The vampire hunters are working with the Chicago area vampire nests to keep things ethical. The rules are known as the Covenant. Hunters do not deny that vampires crave companions, but those companions have to be willing lovers.
Hunters have the tacit cooperation of the Vampire Enforcer of the City. Vampire Enforcer Christopher Bell has been sent from England to investigate rumors of a revolution. When he encounters Ivy, who is being followed through the dark streets, he finds himself utterly intrigued. Ivy claims that she does not need protection, especially from an Enforcer, but Christopher cannot stop himself. He soon finds himself in the middle of a fight between demons and mortals, determined to safe guard the vexing woman who has managed to stir his undead heart.
If you love reading urban vampire fiction, then you should already recognize the name of Susan Sizemore. This is one author that is not to be missed. The author holds back no punches. From the instant I began to read the prologue, I was unable to tear myself away. The storytelling talent of Susan Sizemore leaves me in awe! During this rest period Io expected to relax and take several fantastic photos in hopes of turning her photography hobby into a career.
But shortly after she met Imogen at the GothFaire, Io found herself whisked back in time. The shimmering mist she had seen in the woods had been a portal. Io ended up stuck in the year But when fate tossed a mysterious and strangely attired woman at his horse, Nikola became intrigued. Io could not help the feelings that Nikola stirred within her. Yet Io also knew what his murderous half brothers had planned for Nikola.
If Io saved Nikola, what would be the consequences to the future? This story begins in the present, travels three hundred years into the past, and back to the present. I admit to finding the past quaint, but I totally agree with Io about missing all the luxuries that I have come to take for granted — such as toilet paper. Romance, suspense, and humor blend together smoothly to give readers a memorable afternoon. Since her birth Miranda Ellis has had an affinity with fire. For her entire life she has struggled to control it. At the age of ten, Miranda made a mistake that cost her family their fortune.
It had been an accident, but her father, Hector Ellis, refuses to let Miranda forget it. Her older sisters, Daisy and Poppy, are married and out from under their father's thumb. But Miranda is often forced to steal trinkets for her father to sell. After all, the man has already sold everything in the house worth a few coins. Now he is giving Miranda a choice: Marry the man called the Dread Lord Archer or be put out into the streets forever.
The right side of his body is deformed due to an "accident". He has been away from London for several years, searching for a cure or to help ease his pain. He knows it is selfish to take Miranda as his bride, but he feels drawn to her. He looks into her eyes and sees the reflection of his salvation. Miranda can see him , the man, instead of a monster.
Miranda can ease his loneliness and Archer can ensure that she never wants for anything. Titled men from Archer's past begin showing up dead and Archer realizes that he can no longer ignore his fate. There is a lot of circumstantial evidence that pints to Archer as being the killer, yet Miranda refuses to believe it. Archer refuses to tell her what the accident was that had deformed him, so she begins searching for her own answers.
Archer must give in to the beastly nature he has struggled so hard to hide if he wants to keep Miranda safe. And Miranda must enter a world of dark magic and fire if she wants to save Archer's soul. It is hard to believe that this is Callihan's debut novel. The story is set during the Regency Era and has the dark flavor of an old Gothic Romance. Archer's mysterious past is slowly revealed, coaxed into the light by the curious and tenacious Miranda, and it is an unmitigated disaster.
The heroine is audacious, especially when it comes to those she cares for. She is a strong-willed character and the perfect match for Archer. The author has a rich and vivid writing style that seems to clash with the darkness of the story's plot, making it all the more fascinating to me. I was hooked almost immediately and frustrated whenever I had to put the book down for even a moment. Kristen Callihan is destined for greatness!
Knowing long before his death that he husband would not ensure her welfare once he was gone, Daisy has used her undignified talent for dissecting smells to create several successful perfumes. However, Daisy never sold the formula for her personal scent. While attending a gala one evening, she is one of the people attacked by a vicious beast. It is only by chance that Daisy survives. Lord Ian Ranulf, the Marquis of Northrup, has spent several lifetimes hiding his Lycan nature from society. He is nearby when the screaming begins.
The mad werewolf is gone by the time Ian gets to the scene of attack. He is shocked to find a survivor among the bloody carnage. To keep Daisy from revealing what had attacked her, Ian has Daisy taken to his home for care. He used to be a doctor. Ian pledges to protect Daisy until the threat is neutralized. Ian is in self-chosen exile from the clan. His brother, Conall, currently sits upon the Lycan throne. Even so, the duty has fallen upon Ian to protect London from the insane werewolf.
That means keeping Daisy close. Daisy seems to be the only one in the group without some sort of supernatural ability. It is also up to Daisy to keep the peace, because there are hard feelings between Ian, Benjamin, and Miranda. This may be the second title in the Darkest London Series, but you do not have to read the first book to fully enjoy this story. The first book is titled Firelight and tells the story between Miranda and Lord Archer. The third title involves the eldest sister, Poppy, who plays a small role in this adventure.
Author Kristen Callihan has given more information on the Lycan background and the reader learns more about the Lycan hierarchy. It is not a very pretty picture either. Backgrounds of all the major and secondary characters are well developed. The plot is solid and the writing style flows smoothly.
This story owes me a night of sleep. Author: Lynsay Sands Title - The Lady is a Vamp An Argeneau Novel When Jeanne Louise Argeneau leaves work and gets into her car, the last thing she expects is to be drugged and kidnapped by a good-looking mortal; however, that is exactly what happens. Needless-to-say, Jeanne Louise is upset at first, but that feeling changes to one of curiousness. That is one of the clues of a possible life mate. To learn whether he is her life mate or not would take a few days, so she decides not to try escaping just yet.
Paul Jones works at Argeneau Enterprises. To do his job, the fact that vampires existed was revealed. But Paul was not told everything about his immortal employers. Such as they are able to read minds and control mortals. His five-year-old daughter, Olivia, is dying of cancer. Livy means everything to him. Paul wants Jeanne Louise to make Livy an immortal and teach her how to survive. Falling in love with Jeanne Louise comes as a surprise. Paul and Jeanne Louise are trying to evade them until they can decide what to do. There is no real danger this time around and the story is predictable, but I believe it is still a good addition to the series and worth your time to read.
There are a few cameos from characters of previous titles, but this remains a stand-alone story. If you want a vampire story of a dark variety, go elsewhere. This tale is pretty light and better suited to those wanting to simply relax with a romance. While she is out one afternoon, Charlie hears her name being called out by a lady she does not know. As the woman is crossing the street to speak with Charlie, she is the victim of a hit-and-run.
The lady dies while Charlie is holding her hand. The next thing Charlie knows is that she is reliving the last several minutes, but it is as if Charlie was the unknown woman instead of herself. His good friend, Laurette, had recently gone to Lake Avalon in hopes of finding her cousin. Instead of bringing about a family reunion, Laurette was hit by a car and killed.
Someone in a ninja outfit is strangling Charlie. Elise, her mother, claims not to have any living relatives, yet when Charlie confronts Elise about her cousin, Laurette, it is clear that Noah is right. Charlie has an entire line of unknown relatives somewhere. Charlie is equally amazed when Noah realizes that Charlie is having empathic visions and considers them to be normal.
Charlie is tired of her boss shooting down her articles because they revealed scams that local businesses were pulling on the public. Some of those businesses advertised in the LAG. Charlie went around his back to get one published about a local car dealership. Now the newspaper is about to go out of business and it seems as if everyone is furious with Charlie. As Charlie tries to get a grip on her empathy and fix the problems she caused at the LAG, Noah tries to simply keep her alive. The longer Charlie and Noah are together, the hotter their attraction to each other seems to burn.
No matter What, Noah is determined to keep this amazing reporter alive, by his side, and in his bed. This is the first title in the series about three sisters who have no idea about the empathic ability hiding within each of them. The author, Joyce Lamb, has done a terrific job of showing how much trouble Charlie has in believing her powers are real and then learning to cope with them. To help Charlie out a bit, the author adds a beach side psychic who is extremely charming, as well as a tad mysterious. I feel the lady to be a brilliant touch and adds some Southern flavor.
She is a photojournalist for a local newspaper.

- The Romance of Spanking.
In her not too distant past, Alex had been shot by someone that had been trying to kill her sister, Charlie. Alex died in the Emergency Room and had been shocked back to life. To make the ability even more horrific, Alex wakes up to find her own body covered with any marks and wounds that the other person sustained during the past event.
The only good thing is that the wounds fade away within an hour or so. He has been very attracted to Alex for quite some time. When she seems recovered from being shot, Logan finally asks Alex out. Their relationship is still new and fragile when Alex is kidnapped by Butch McGee.
McGee is the brother of a man Logan had killed back in Chicago. McGee is a serial killer who enjoys torturing and killing women. The FBI knows of twenty-three victims, but they are sure more remain unfound as yet. To punish Logan and avenge his brother, McGee goes after Alex. Alex finally becomes conscious to find that she has been rescued. Logan professes to love her, but he refuses to believe that she has empathic abilities. The last thing Logan wants is for the woman he loves to witness firsthand the horrors he has seen and done in his past. As Alex and Logan work on their relationship, McGee is still out there somewhere.
Alex is the only one to ever survive an encounter with McGee and the killer looks forward to meeting Alex again very soon. The last sister, Sam, who left fourteen years ago, is mentioned more than once too. Charlie and Noah are reduced to secondary characters but are still vital to helping Alex deal with her so-called gift. The beach side psychic helps Alex just as much and her down-home Southern hospitality shines through in every scene she appears.
I look forward to more from this author. Stories by Joyce Lamb pack a serious punch to the gut! When his depression begins to make him drink too often, the Trudeau sisters, Charlie and Alex, convince him to spend a week in their remote family cabin. Mac walks in to discover a young woman unconscious on the floor with a gunshot wound through her shoulder. Since a storm has washed out the roads, it is up to Mac to care for the mysterious lady.
N3 stands for National Neural Network. It is a secret division of the FBI. Each agent has some form of psychic ability. With skin-on-skin contact, Sam is able to mine the memories and experiences of her target. Sam manages to eliminate the assassin, but is now on the run with a bullet hole through her shoulder. Sam wakes in a cabin to find Mac, a civilian, tending her wound.
Before Sam can safely get rid of the man, Flinn is there. Sam and Mac are now fleeing for their lives, trying to stay one step ahead of Flinn and other agents. As they scramble to make sense out of what is going on, Sam and Mac begin to act upon the passion that has been sizzling between them. Yet in the end, Sam knows that she will eventually have to find a way to leave Mac safely behind, because staying with her would get him killed for sure.
Yet toward the end, Charlie, Alex, and their men enter for a cameo or two. There is one child that I would dearly have loved to see grow up. I refuse to give away his name. No spoilers. Perhaps someday he will have his own story told. I would not mind meeting Sloan again either.
